Special Issue: Autonomous Systems and Knowledge Graphs

Over the past decade, Knowledge Graphs (KGs) have gained popularity in mainstream software engineering and are now being exploited in large-scale socio-technical information systems. Increasingly, these systems are decentralised, comprise autonomous entities interacting with humans, and facilitate inter-organisational cooperative behaviour of varying complexity, in particular on the Web. Furthermore, these systems push the limits of current solutions, architectures, and frameworks that implement autonomous behaviour. Consequently, new theoretical and engineering challenges arise; e.g. serendipity of the interaction methods, heterogeneity in knowledge, data and assumptions, standards and protocol implementations, and the emergence of novel cooperation and normative mechanisms, to name a few.


This special issue seeks novel work that tackles theoretical and engineering challenges related to human and machine autonomy benefiting from KGs, including (but not exclusively):
